2. Michael B. Jordan, ‘Creed’

Let’s take a moment to stick with Creed, here, because the film’s leading man, Michael B. Jordan, deserves a little spotlight. Even though he’s only 28, the actor has put in a diverse array of performances (and nailed each one) in roles reaching all the way back to 2002 when he played Wallace in The Wire. In Creed, he tackles a completely different part than anything in his past, channeling a rage and frustration that’s as exciting to watch in its quiet moments as it is in the ring.
